[This is 1 of 2 posts of business cards designed by Silnt]

Bracket,” explains Silnt’s Felix Ng “is a publication that features everything-in-between — ideas, process and voices overlooked and under-appreciated. The business card we designed, looks deceivingly empty until pushed open to reveal a bracket that frames the information.” This is a trick we have probably all wanted to do or be able to pull off. The confident simplicity of this design makes the concept subtly stronger. I can imagine being handed this card in a meeting and not paying a single minute of attention as I close and pop the card.
